I know a lot of people have strong opinions about the two deaths on the Matterhorn, but one of those people was the daughter of a friend and we never believed that she did anything stupid on the ride to cause her death. We will always believe that she fell out of the car. Anyway, as you can imagine, I have a lot of fear about this ride. I understand that the new cars have no seat belts, just lap bars. How are lap bars safer than seat belts? My little grandson will just be tall enough to ride, but I will be petrified to put him on it if all that holds him in is a lap bar and no one can ride next to him to hold him. I remember taking my daughter on Big Thunder when she was little and if I had not held on to her for dear life, she would have flown right out the car. I am hoping that someone can diminish my fears, and I also will be checking back to the boards after the re-opening to see what people think. Thanks for your help.
